Giblet535 Posted January 18, 2007 Share Posted January 18, 2007 I just got a pair of CM2X1024-6400C4 sticks that I intended to use on an MSI 945P mobo. The MSI has a diagnostic panel. :sunglasse During the Pre-POST, I can see that the system checks the chipset, the CPU, configures the memory (from SPD) and begins to "Decompress the BIOS to RAM". It halts here. So, I pulled the OCZ sticks out of my Asus P5B and plugged the Corsair sticks into that system. Nothing. I cleared CMOS several times on both motherboards. I tried one stick. Nothing. I tried the other stick. Nothing. I put the OCZ sticks back in. It works fine. Can BOTH of these sticks be bad? Has anyone had problems with TigerDirect? I just grabbed some Crucial sticks (I *need* that MSI system), but I would really like to figure out what's wrong here. FWIW, I am using a wrist-strap and mat! I'm not a total newb... Thanks folks!
